's structural. look at the polling numbers right? let's go to ohio first a-31. romney is losing by four points in ohio. and that's just one poll, the cnn poll but a combination of polls still has president obama comfortably up. >> four polls in ohio two twos, a four and a five. >> cenk: then in nevada president obama has a three-point lead in nevada. if he leads in nevada and ohio, it's a no-brainer, he's a winner. the electoral college is on his side. on the other side, meat loaf is on romney's side. he's about to do one of the worst renditions i've ever seen of any song. let's watch. ♪ everybody sing ♪ america ♪ america ♪ god ♪ his grace on thee ♪ crown thy good ♪ from sea ♪ from sea ♪ to shining ♪ sea ♪ >> that--a couple of things to say. first of all he blew the lyrics point one, not the song. romney in the beginnini, u co d tellultehahameat loaf is going off the deepened, romney is frigid, if we let that video continue romney quickly moves to the other end. >> two points you made are good, two out of the three. >> cenk: i'm sorry i had to subject the audience to that
was more excited four years ago. >> reporter: meanwhile, fervent supporters at the romney rally often have their own nuanced motivations. are you more emotional about wanting romney to win or wanting obama to lose? >> wanting obama to lose, yes. most definitely. >> reporter: that motivates you? >> yeah. he let the whole country down. >> reporter: candidates appreciate any kind of support. but the more unconditional and enthusiastic that support is, the more likely that voter will go to the polls. and voter turnout on november 6th will be critical. romney strategists have been concerned that the perceived lack of their candidate's competitiveness could ultimately lead to less enthusiasm and therefore, a lower turnout. so the message being emphasized to the gop base is that romney can win. than makes the message from obama strategists all the more interesting. in order to increase democratic enthusiasm and turnout, they have the very same message. romney can win this. a new obama ad is basically trying to frighten democrats into making sure they vote. reminding them of the disputed 2000 elec
/"washington post" poll indicates obama's enthusiasm numbers were higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the raw politics with gop strategist mary matalin and democratic strategist, james carville. good evening to you
, 270 is the magical number. after all the talk of momentum for mitt romney, that number four seems to be constant. with early voting there, is it going to be possible for mitt romney to get those critical electelectoral votes. >> no president has ever within the presidency without winning ohio and mitt romney doesn't see a path of doing it without the buckeye state. they'll be essentially living in ohio that either romney or ryan will be in the buckeye state until election day. the problem that they have is that where the message nationally might be on all sorts of different things, on ohio, the president has visited ohio more than any other state since he was elected and he has always pounded the issues of auto bailout, and that it is crucial. in addition to the president being able to say hey i helped save the auto makers, and mitt romney wanted to let them go a bankrupt that's a potent message in ohio. sherrod brown has done an incredible job of organizing unions and making sure that hardcore democrats get to the polls regardless of what is going on with president obama. it's a
. to award romney all of his states and left with three or four percentage points with the battleground states. with the battleground states president obama all he needs to do to get to the 270 electoral votes that he needs to win if he wins nevada, and you have a top republican saying nevada is going with obama. wins wisconsin which has the president up two or three points. then you add iowa or new hampshire which the polls may an slight obama lead but even if romney runs the table and gets every state that currently has it as a dead heat, florida, virginia, iowa, new hampshire, as long as president obama still holds on to ohio, nevada and wisconsin no matter what the national pop lay vote, the president gets 271 and he wins. >> eliot: if i hear you properly what is going on here, even though the national polls are saying this thing is closing up, mitt romney is making this thing an interesting horse race to watch, it isn't good enough in this race, 270 is the magical number. after all the talk of momentum for mitt romney, that number four seems to be constant. with early voting there,
at the cartridge. how is romney courting the youth vote? >> four years ago, then senator bausm did very well with younger voters. was one of the reasons he won the white house. but mitt romney is not ignoring those young voters at all. take a listen to what he said last night on the campaign trail in ohio. >> if you're a college student looking to graduate sometime, maybe next spring, you know you've got, what, $10,000 or $20,000 worth of loans that you've got to pay back and you know how heavy a burden that might be, but by the way, because of all the spending of this administration and prior administrations, you also have about $50,000 of government debt. yeah. and what's the president doing about that? why he keeps on adding more and more and more debt? i don't understand how a college kid could vote for barack obama. >> i think it's fair to say the president will disagree with that. but mitt romney really thinks his economic message will resonate with younger voters. one other thing you mentioned early voting. early voting getting under way today right here in florida. eight days of earl
is reflected in the daily ra rasmussen tracking po. also from rasmussen romney has a four-point advantage 50 to 46 in the key wing states. here with reaction author of the price of politics bob woodward is with us. before we get to the polls, bob, i wanted to ask you in light of reading your book cover to cover and he really enjoyed it. >> thank you. >> sean: and i have not enjoyed all your books by the way, some are pretty tough on people i like. in all seriousness in light of what you concluded with the president on economic issues and the grand bargain and opportunity missed. here we have this father at the top of the show tonight telling this story, we learnd that they requested help, americans under fire they were denied these requests. guy had to literally go against orders to save people and for seven hours he went there fighting the fight and saving people's lives and still they were denied military assistance. what do you make of this? >> that somebody really needs to investigate it and you can't have a self-investigation. you have to have somebody from the outside do it. it is rare
. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republican votes and romney is concentrating. and polls show romney has an edge and the romney republican side of things things they are fairly safe here. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about that. he said you know, first responders really need to focus on the preparation for the storm. we'll go tho to ohio instead. cope the folk necessary virginia and new jersey and new york and on the coast in your minds and you know how tough the hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. interesting that they are applauding to go to ohio. the buck eye state will be pivotal. and early voting began in florida. it
out. for romney changed from four years ago. >> this requires as change. >> it's a different audience. >> the governor leads among white men, 66-32% and leads the most national polls where the president has a slight lead in many of the battleground states. that is up has both campaigns feeling confident they have the voters the ground game to bring home a victory. >> somebody is going to be wrong on november 7th so very different assumptions the campaigns 6 about the kinds of people who are going to turn out to vote. >> how close this election. one ohio voter wrote facebook, ann romney called in to wish him happy birthday. >> it's unclear whether sandy could bring the president off the campaign trail proving how important early voting is for both campaigns. >> terry: this morning the national weather service sandy is a hurricane again after being downgraded to tropical storm status. residents are being told to stock up with supplies for three days. super storm is expected to make landfall on monday night. airlines are warning about delays. five states have already declared a state of
that but the romney camp will enjoy that a bit. looking at the polls tonight, wisconsin in four years ago, president obama stormed the state by 14 points. this does seem to be a seismic shift in the state. >> there is. wisconsin has become a republican state by virtue of the incredibly intense organizational efforts there of governor scott walker's people, americans for prosperity and various other political groups that have really mobilized the free market forces in the state. they have been through a recall election. a senate recall. a judicial election. and, of course, the original election in 2010 and they won them all and i think wisconsin is going to go for romney. let me put this in a context, greta. i don't think any one has the overview. 179 lectorral votes and states john mccain carried. indiana and north carolina where he just barely carried and they will undoubtedly go republican. 25 votes between them. that brings you up to 204. then you have 51 votes in swing states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he i
states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he is five or six ahead. and colorado 10 where he is four ahead. so that brings him up to 255. he has got to get to 270. so he is 15 short. then you have a market basket of 8 states that cast 98 elector aral votes where the polls are tied. new hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but he is certainly going to win at least one so he is going to get at least the 15 votes. this business that everybody should hang on what happens in ohio is ridiculous. he could lose ohio and carry either pennsylvania or minnesota or michigan and wiscons
poll has president obama leading mitt romney by four points, 50% to 46%. a new england college poll of new hampshire likely voters has president obama leading mitt romney by three points, 49 to 46. tonight, nate silver of the new york times blog forecasts that on november 6th, president obama has a 74% chance of winning re-election and over 13 point increase in the last two weeks. nate silver projects president obama will win 295 electoral votes and mitt romney will win 243. so krystal ball we are 12 days away from the ugliest creature that mitt romney has dragged into the presidential campaign, john sununu. he was driven out of washington, in scandal when he was the white house chief of staff for the first president bush. the man was driven out in scandal and it took mitt romney to drag him back in front of television cameras. >> it's been such a bizarre choice. he is the person he put forward the most. he's their lead surrogate and it's such a strange choice for his campaign and this is not the first time that he's stepped in it. he's the one who had to apologize for saying the pr
with romney. >> bob: nothing? >> eric: nothing to do with romney. do you want four years of obamanomics. pull? pull up the next graphic i put together. people on disability. there are now record number of disability on -- number of people on disability. 8 million americans went on disability. if you combine it with the people, americans unemploy, 20 million people. divide it by the workforce. 15%. >> dana: well, if people need to be on disability, the government needs to be there to help them. our problem is people left the workforce in droves. the underemployment. if you want a full-time job and you could only get a part-time job. if you got so discouraged that you left the workplace anyway. we don't have enough people working. enough years to take care of people that might legitimately need disability funding. or food stamps, whatever it might be. we do not have enough people. aging population. no economic plan to get it. today the economic growth number comes out for the last quarter, it's 2%. that's measly. barely keeps up with the population growth. >> eric: take out the government spend
of going away from obama to romney, four states, four or five states, that's really where, you know, all of this matters. it's a little like cable news pundants after debates talking about how people out there in the country are going to see this debate. they have no idea. >> how dare they? >> they're looking at their blackberry which is getting text and e-mails from, who? other consultants from the campaign. it's a weird closed loop that pretends to have a relation to the electorate. >> you said something in the greenroom which hopefully you didn't say to me in confidence. >> if so i'll never be on the show again. >> you said to me in the greenroom, there is a feedback loop. that you as a political reporter, i have had this skpeerps too, showing up to talk to voters. just knocking on the doors. the things you get back from them are them saying what they heard on the news. >> here's the point. we've had the same political story in this country for 12 years. we are an evenly divided country. the obama election in 2008 was a little bit of an exception because of the disaster in the bush ye
with the last four years, but aren't sure romney is going to take them in the right direction. this includes working class women, working women, unmarried women. they seem to be among the key voting blocks up for grabs. you will see both candidates trying to reach out. romney not telling people they were wronged four years ago, but they are right to be disappointed. the president telling people look at what we have accomplished and how much more can we do. and then you will see both campaigns on the ground having identified most of their voters and trying to get them out. >> just curious, what do you think president obama -- what do you think of president obama as they are trying to sway his way. at what point does he bring up the, well you remember when president george w bush took off with the sur plus and -- surplus. do people even care at this point? they say i don't care. my wallet is at a deficit. >> i don't know that most people are particularly interested with what the economy is like. is like four or eight years ago. it is exactly as you say. how am i doing now, and how am i going t
barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high income people than people in the lower income category. >> the swing over the last 20 years in affluent suburbs has been attributed to culture, gay marriage and the southern tilt of the republican party, is the swing back this year really because of the economy trumping culture in the minds of most voters? >> well, i think that's true of all segments of voters. the economy is trumping the cultural issue of. it rub
's had only four years. that's all mitt romney needed. he turned massachusetts around. turned the deficit into a rainy kay -- day fund. >> and they are crisscrossing the nation, attracting huge crowds in one or the other of eight key battleground states in search of a break out message. >> there is no more serious message in the presidential campaign than who can you trust? trust matters. who is going to look out for you? and here's the thing. nevada, you know me by now. you know i say what i mean. and i mean what i say. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new, bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring america's families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. gwen: and that's just what you can see. the campaign is coming down to science -- numbers-crunching, door-knocking, message-crafting science. and that extends to politics at every level, including a critical group of tight senate races. at this point does anyone really know what is going to dies -- decide all this, glori
's advisers have repeated a claim, they don't say it much, that mitt romney made that he can create 12 million jobs in four years. they've offered no evidence as to how they do that but to achieve that goal, job growth would need to be 50% higher than it is right now. under normal circumstances now under current circumstances, we'd get about 8 million jobs over four years. this means creating an average of 250,000 jobs each month instead of the number that the economy is adding now. what's the secret plan there, bob? you were the labor secretary. is there a secret plan to create jobs that doesn't depend on growth that may not materialize. it's iffy growth will get to the 4% we need to get to create 12 million jobs in the next four years. >> you need to have a very strong recovery. we don't have a strong recovery yet to get to those kind of job numbers. i think the white house assumes and i wouldn't be surprised if the romney exam camp didn't also assume the economy will gain momentum over the next four years and those job numbers are not out of the question. remember under bill clinton, i was
to ignore governor romney's business advice when he said detroit should go bankrupt. now america, we are building the best cars on earth. four years ago i promised to end the war in iraq and we did. i promised that we would begin the transition in afghanistan, and we are. i said we would go after the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11, and thanks to the brave men and women in uniform, the courage of our navy seals, al qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> president obama at a middle school in nashua, new hampshire there. spending a fair amount of time talking about governor romney's record. also spent time basically laying out why he doesn't think governor romney would be a friend of middle class in this country, and got quite the applause with his birther joke there in front of the crowd. kristen walker has been traveling with the president. let's talk about the energy there and the size of that crowd. can you give us an idea about both of those things? >> well, we haven't gotten an official crowd count yet, craig. i can tell you that the crowd here is certa
that moved away. so where he had at 206, 206 to 201, now 191. and let's turn now tto of romney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the polls by a significant margin, but four points. yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, just as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, where both candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenario we will assumed that governor romney wins. i'm sure you won't argue. he also needs nevada where president obama right now is up by two and a half points. we are giving that to governor romney. see how this scenario plays out. the president would have to take the state of michigan where he is up by four points. let's give those 15 points to him. wisconsin where he is up by two. this is oe of the most -- obvio
four years ago, and a state mitt romney would really love to have in his column ten days from now. everybody would love to have every single state in their column. so why is virginia -- first of all, how are you doing? why is virginia so important to the election? >> reporter: i'm doing great, we'll talk to students at washington university in just a bit. virginia is one of the three big swing states, florida, virginia, ohio, the path of the battleground bus that we have been on. virginia is fascinating, because president obama was the first democrat to win it since lyndon johnson, in 1964. the population is growing, more diverse now. now the population growth, frankly well to the north of virginia was to his benefit in 2008. right now, the economy here in virginia, pretty good compared to the rest of the country, 8% national. so this is a place democrats hope they could win again. it is tight, they have a very competitive senate race. every vote counts. it is really about the ground game. >> they were going after every single demographic that they can get. young people, old peopl
